    1.5 inch needle for glutes






    hey guys. If i had to guess im about 12% body fat right now. Is a 1.5" needle to long for a glute injection for someone with 12% body fat? or should I get 1"?

    It's not too long the glutes are a very thick muscle. I think it's always better to get the injection as deep as possible. If it's too shallow it can be very bad news!

    Don't psych yourself out bro. If you are going in upper and outer part of the glute you won't hit a bone I promise! It might feel like the bone when you push with your fingers but there is probably a couple inches of muscle and fat there. Make sure you go straight in and straight out on the same angle. I find if I lean against the bathroom counter and relax and bend my leg slightly it makes it much easier aswell. Go in quick and smooth asperate, if no blood just some bubbles push the oil in for a count of 10, then remove the needle for a count of about 5 then apply pressure with coton ball and massage for a minute.

    This. I know 1.5" seems huge, but you've got a lot more then 1.5" before you would hit bone.

    Go with 1.5" man, I wouldn't risk getting the 1" for glutes.

    I was the worst with needles, I would literally pass out when I saw a needle near me. You'll get over it man, unless you don't want to be jerked and tan

    1.5" is perfect for the glutes. i use em for my quads also. 1" i save for my delts. You wont hit bone. check out a thread on the HardBody sponsor page called idiots guide to anabolic steroids posted by Brandon123. It has a great portion on it for guys new to injecting.

    I personally relax if you flex then unfelt for a second while the needle is in it causes tiny tears in the muscles which fucken hurt and build up to scar tissue and knots

    Look at the bright side, the deeper it goes, the less likely it is to come out when you pull out the needle.

    I lie down on my side with my legs bent when I inject into my glutes. It's nice and stable and it makes it easier to reach around back there. My biggest concern is getting the needle where I cleaned with alcohol, which is difficult because it's hard to see. Trying to do it in a mirror gets me totally confused.

    The circular motion is really important. It should spiral out so you move bacteria away from the injection site. I got that lecture from my doctor.

    I'm such a spaz I'm afraid I'll miss even a big area.

    Going to try my first glute pin soon,
    Tried it once before was a disaster was wobbling up an down in Sub Q.


    Only thing is i get second thoughts doing them.
    We all know there is a big nerve running down the center of our ass check.
    This is where we inject.


    Seems a little close to the middle just freaks me out.
    then you have this


    Seems like asking for trouble to me.

    Been doing Delts Chest Quad but needing to inject more than 2ml and Chest struggles.

    When I got my last flu shot, I swear she used a 1.5" in my delt. So I would say its not too big.

    I promise once you get past the first one you will be looking forward to pin days.

    1 inch has always worked fine for me.

    1.5 looks scary to me

    I use 23g 1.5" for my glutes and 25g 1" for everything else. I've never had a problem with either. In fact, I fell like the 23g 1.5" in the glute is the least painful shot for Prop. When I mix my Prop I find them all pretty much painless.

    You have to get your first 2 shots in each different muscle out of the way. After this all of the shots a painless.
